Fasting for a change: Why I joined Chief Theresa Spence's hunger strike

Sheila North Wilson

Going without food or water is not something I do often or take lightly. Mainly because I love desserts and coffee! But when our First Nations leaders in Manitoba called for a national inquiry looking into the high number of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls earlier this summer, I felt the call to fast. In my belief however, such a call has to be confirmed in someone's heart or mind three times before a call to act is pursued. The first two confirmations came while I was reading, and while talking to someone. The third confirmation came as I listened to Chief Theresa Spence of Attawapiskat, Ont., talking during the Assembly of First Nations Special Chiefs Assembly on December 5.
